What does Opus skin resurfacing do?

The Opus Plasma system utilizes targeted radiofrequency (RF) energy to destroy damaged skin cells and stimulate the regeneration of new, healthy skin cells and collagen to address common skin concerns and give the complexion a brighter, healthier, younger appearance overall. Some of the skin imperfections that can be greatly improved with Opus Plasma skin resurfacing include:

  • Fine lines
  • Early wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Clogged pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dark spots
  • Discoloration
  • Acne scarring
  • Other types of scars
  • Rough skin texture
  • Dry or oily skin
  • Dull skin

Does RF skin resurfacing hurt?

Most patients do not find Opus skin resurfacing to be painful or unpleasant. During the treatment, patients will notice a warm sensation as the Opus handpiece is passed across the skin to deliver RF energy. The Opus system has a built-in cooling mechanism to help alleviate any discomfort you may feel. Additionally, our providers can discuss the option of applying a topical numbing cream prior to treatment if necessary.

How will my skin look right after RF plasma resurfacing?

Patients are typically able to reapply makeup and return to their normal daily activities almost immediately after their RF skin resurfacing appointment. Some redness and irritation are to be expected, and the skin will begin to peel or flake away after about 2 – 3 days. After about a week, patients should notice their complexion starting to look brighter, healthier, and clearer. The results of RF skin resurfacing will continue to improve as new collagen fibers work to create a firmer, more lifted look, and new skin cells help to smooth and clear the complexion. On average, patients can expect the results of RF skin resurfacing to last for up to five years, with many men and women choosing to undergo routine treatments annually to boost the effects of treatment and help keep their skin looking its best over time.

Is RF skin resurfacing right for me?

During your initial consultation for Opus skin resurfacing in Bellevue, OH, Dr. West or a knowledgeable member of our team will carefully evaluate your skin type and tone, discuss your specific concerns, and determine whether you may be an eligible candidate for treatment. Most men and women can safely undergo Opus RF skin resurfacing with the exception of patients with particularly dark skin tones, active acne outbreaks, and those who may be pregnant. Again, we will work closely with you to find a skin rejuvenation solution that meets your needs and helps you achieve the beautiful complexion you deserve.
